The REDARC BCDC1240D is a 12V 40A In-vehicle DC to DC battery charger. It features the next generation in REDARC DC to DC in-vehicle charging technology, charging from Solar and DC inputs simultaneously with additional features that make it the most advanced dual battery charger on the market.
Featuring a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulator, the BCDC1240D will charge from both solar and the alternator simultaneously. With built-in 'Green Power Priority' it will select solar charging first, meaning less load on the alternator.
Green Power Priority
Green Power Priority is used to describe the priority given to a solar input when charging an auxiliary battery in your vehicle. For example, if a solar power input is available the maximum available solar power will be used before topping up the output charge current from another power source. Priority is given to the solar input then to AC Mains power (where applicable), then to DC Vehicle Power, the advantage of this is that it places less load on the alternator.
Suitable for 12 or 24-volt vehicle systems, the unit will also work with either standard or variable/smart alternators.
The BCDC1240D also comes with patented charging profiles, including a lithium charging profile. The 'Dual' input range will continue to charge all other types of batteries including AGM, GEL, standard lead acid and calcium.
As a guide, the BCDC1240D is used for battery bank sizes over 200AH. For smaller batteries of 75-200AH REDARC recommends the BCDC1225D.
Proven and Tested
The award-winning technology in the BCDC has been independently verified and tested to ensure battery life is maximised, charging your battery to a proven 100%.
Trusted for its Australian design and tested for our unique conditions, the DC to DC battery charger will work in the extreme heat of the Simpson Desert, up to 80 C and can handle deep water crossings at Cape York water, dust and vibration are no match for this charger.
If you are heading out into the bush and want to get there and back again safely you can trust REDARC.
